" no, it does not. what makes me democrat is the violence see republicans and democrats

. it looks like president obama is going to get that one too. it'll be 323 electoral votes when all is said and done. but let's go and show you how the president did it, if you will. i want to go to ohio because ohio was a big deal at the time. what was interesting here is where the margins were. it was all margins. this wasn't -- this was reduplicating the map. here's what the county map looks like right now. i'll go to 2008. if anything, he did better in coal country as you can see. and you see the blue goes away over here. romney did what he had to do. he ran up margins here. the problem is right here. it was margins in cuyahoga plus underperforming with white working class men in the auto belt here. these two areas also swing. and those swing areas didn't go for mitt romney as well either. he kept it closer. he ran up the margins in his home turf, but he couldn't cut in the swing areas. one of the interesting things about the swing counties, i want to run through this here. hamilton county stayed with the president. jefferson county stayed with the president. washo county, stayed with t

this evening president obama will host the cast and crew of the movie "lincoln" for a screening at the white house. he is coming off a very important news conference yesterday. not only was this the first since his re-election, it was also the first he's held in eight months. several reporters did want to talk about the general petraeus scandal, of course but the president fortunately did get to spend a lot of time on the fiscal cliff which is what he was hoping for. while left room for a compromise by not taking a hard, red line on taxes he did say that he will not extend cuts for the rich. >> obama: when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further tax cut for folks who don't need it which would cost close to a trillion dollars. >> senate democrats are hoping he will stick to that claim and not compromise. with republicans they're asking the president not to cave in on talks over the fiscal cliff. those do start tomorrow. west virginia's jay rockefeller and iowa's tom harkin are passing
